This year’s program will hold something for everyone – be entertained by the vast array of brilliant, unforgettable and diverse films.

From award winners to festival favourites, cult films, classic cinema, entertaining dramas, compelling documentaries and dark comedies – expect to be entertained. A renewed focus on industry and education will promote connection and conversation, through a packed schedule of masterclasses and panel sessions featuring some of our most well-known and successful creatives.

For 11 days in October we celebrate the storytellers and filmmakers that seek to distract us from our daily lives.
